Preparation

Presentation

Presentation 1:

Directress places the materials on a small felt cloth.

Directress introduces the child to the ten bead bar.

"This is a ten bead bar. Would you like to count?".

The Directress invites the child to count the ten bead bar, 1 to 10.

Directress then reminds the child about the short colored bead stair and then invites the child to build the triangle with it.

The Directress then takes a ten bead bar and a short bead stair from the triangle built starting from 1, place them together and says '1 ten bead bar and 1 makes 11. ... 10 and 1 makes 11'.

She then takes another ten bead bar and the next short bead stair, place them together and says '10 and 2 makes 12', and repeats the same for 13.

Directress should introduce the numbers 11 to 19 in sets of three, i.e. 11-13 and when the child is familiar with 11-13, then she should be introduced to 13-15, 15-17, and 17-19.

The Directress then uses the Three Period Lesson to teach them the names.

Presentation2:

Directress starts to introduce them to the symbols 11-19.

Directress points to the first 10 and asks "What is this?".

When the child replies 10, the Directress then says "I am going to cover the 0. 10 and 1 makes 11" and she slips the 1 to cover the 0 on the 10.

Then she shows him 12 and 13.

Directress should introduce the numbers 11-19 in sets of three.

The Directress then uses the Three Period Lesson to teach them the names.

Presentation 3:

Directress places the materials on a large felt mat on the floor.

The child selects the first card, which is the number 1 card and slips it over the first 10 on the Board covering 0.

The Directress then takes one Ten Bead Bar and the one from the Short Bead Stair and places it to the left of the Number 11 and says "10 and 1 makes 11".

"Do you know what comes after 11?" ask the Directress. The child should answer 12.

Directress then shows how to build till 13, and then encourages the child to continue building till 19 in the similar manner for 11

Control Of Error

The number of Golden Beads, and the Short Bead Stair which should be built in a triangle, provide the child with the correct number of beads in the right order so that the quantities can be built without error.

Points Of Interest

Because the Short Bead Stair is built in a triangle, the child need only has to take the next bar from the triangle and the order 11 to 19 will be controlled.

Purpose

Presentation 1: To teach the child the quantities 1-19.

Presentation 2: To teach the child the symbols 11-19.

Presentation 3: To teach the child combination of quantity and symbol.
